The local country music scene is well represented by Mary D’Arcy, formerly of Two’s Company and The Whole Hog Band from Blessington.

One of the local newcomers taking to the stage on the night is Newbridge woman Bernie Heaney.

She has been gigging on the local pub scene for the past number of years, and is planning to release an album in the near future.

She also recently won a country star search competition organised by Dublin’s Sunshine FM radio, and subsequently opened a show for Roly Daniels in the Red Cow.

The Irish dancers from Leinster Academy of Dance in Newbridge will add to the colourful spectacle of this special gala night and music throughout the night will be provided by The Conquerors.
